Viña Castellano Estate Vineyards and Winery offers an intimate setting with tasting at the bar or bistro in their stone barrel cave. The friendly and passionate staff (which often includes the family themselves) will walk you through the list of Spanish and Rhone wines along with encompassing a little family history.

The tasting lasts approximately 30 – 45 minutes. We generally have between 7 to 9 wines in a flight, but can have as many as 10 on the bar when we do a special release. Tasting is $7 for a regular flight.  There may be a slight additional charge if you wish to taste special releases when they are available.

Regardless of what you choose, the fee is waived if you decide to purchase a bottle. For $40 you can enjoy tasting with sampling of artisan Spanish meats and cheeses, along with tapenades, Marcona almonds, the family recipe herbed-olives and Dark Chocolate and sea salt covered almonds. Call to make a reservation. Food must be pre-ordered as it is catered. (This tasting is available on Groupon or Living Social) We have some picnic snack items available for purchase onsite if you want to put together a spontaneous “Bistro Picnic”.
